“Each year, we look forward to making The Forum not only informative and educational, but also engaging, social and fun for participants,” said Patrik Eriksson, president of Ormco. “Whether you’re an orthodontist, office manager, treatment coordinator or part of the clinical staff, The Forum is designed to integrate the latest in cutting-edge research and technologies with interactive workshops and lectures. As with this past year’s Forum, we’re thrilled to once again integrate a ‘Face2Face’ experience, where participants will experience sessions designed to foster relationships while discussing industry advancements and techniques.”

The Forum 2017 will keep participants at the forefront of global orthodontic advancements. Throughout the four-day conference, attendees have the opportunity to participate in numerous workshops addressing beginner to advanced content focusing on new techniques, tools and technologies covering all aspects of the orthodontic practice. Over forty notable speakers are scheduled to present at The Forum including Drs. Dwight Damon, Chris Chang, Stuart Frost and Frank Bogdan. They will share their unique techniques, from new treatment modalities to the latest technologies and practice differentiation strategies.

“The Forum is an incredible educational event,” Dr. Kaleem Razi commented. “The breakout sessions have excellent speakers covering a wide range of topics from practice management to clinical pearls. My favorite aspect of the Forum is having the opportunity to interact with fellow colleagues and obtain invaluable information from successful orthodontists.”

Participants new to passive self-litigation are encouraged to attend the optional Pre-Forum Damon™ Essentials Seminar on February 22, 2017 with Dr. Alan Bagden, where they will have the opportunity to learn about the Damon philosophy and gain a deeper knowledge on how to employ simplified passive self-ligating treatment mechanics. The seminar will provide complete case presentations of early treatment, Class II, Class III, adult cases and more.

In conjunction with The Forum, Ormco will host a Dinner & Dance charity event benefitting Smile For a Lifetime, a national charity providing quality orthodontic treatment for underserved individuals who may not have the financial assistance to achieve a beautiful, straight smile.
